If you built a 320, you will do fine with a 300 in my opinion. The
tracking takes a while to adjust. No scope required for that. A good ear
to hear beating, something to compare it to, and patience will be your best
tools. I found it was easier to do two at once that one at a time.
However, I am now building my third, so I expect I might need to go back
and tweak # 1 and 2 while adjusting # 3. I found that nothing I own is
perfectly in tune when tracking up and down the keyboard. Not even the
digital stuff.

I agree with you 100% on the 320 LED. I was too pleasantly surprised. The
extra dollars for that puppy on the LFO was worth every penny. Too cool.
